The global weeding killing robot market is expected to grow significantly during 2018-2024. Factors driving the growth of the market are; increasing acceptance of robotics in agriculture, increasing adoption of automation in various end-use industries, and rapid pace of technological development in farming. Additionally, increasing demand for food and high yield are further augmenting the need for enhancing farm productivity. The market growth is also driven by its high operational efficiency, as it can work for up to 12 hours, while detecting and destroying weeds. However, high capital investments for installation may hinder the market growth upto some extent.
Weed killing robot is an emerging robotic technology that is used to identify the weeds and destroys them. Weed killing robots are gaining popularity as they can reduce the need for universal herbicides and genetically modified crops. These robots are solar powered, robust, reliable and can work without any human operator. The speed of a robot varies in accordance with the concentration of weeds. It adapts its speed according to the concentration of weeds in a field, and is highly suitable for the low or moderate concentration. Moreover, the robots can also be controlled by using smart phone applications. With the help of weed killing robot, the consumption of herbicides becomes 20 times (approx.) less than the traditional method.
Tertill: A Solar Powered Weeding Robot for Home Garden
Tertill is a very tiny, toxin-free, solar powered robot which is used to prevent the growth of weeds as it has a unique design and variety of sensors. Tertill is employed for patrolling the garden daily, and eliminate the weeds by traversing taller plants. The weeding robot targets the plants which are smaller than an inch, and if the plants are still small, they are protected with the help of protective shields. Moreover, Tertill’s four wheels enable it to go smoothly over bumps, and it regulates its energy based on sunlight. Furthermore, the robot is waterproof which makes it usable in all climatic conditions.
